Penn State Housing Assignments Set To Drop July 20

Penn State students will know their roommates, dorm assignments, and more once housing information officially drops at noon on Tuesday, July 20.

Once assignments are available, students can head over to eLiving to schedule move-in times and begin preparing for the fall semester. Just like last year, every Penn State student who’s living on campus this fall needs to schedule a move-in time.

Fall move-in will follow the week-long schedule depicted below. Monday, August 16, through Wednesday, August 18, is (ideally) reserved for incoming freshmen and those who have an academic need to move onto campus early. Official move-in for all other students will kick off on Friday, August 20.

Students living at White Course Apartments or the Nittany Lion Inn can arrive any day starting Friday, August 20.

Students moving in from August 16 to 18 will need to pay an early-bird fee. Penn State said it waived Thursday’s fee to give students and families a more convenient opportunity to move in ahead of the rush.

Before unpacking your cars, you’ll need to check in at the Bryce Jordan Center or Commons Desk to pick up your room keys and other move-in materials. Check out this online checklist to make sure you’ve got what you need before heading over.

Back in April, Penn State’s Board of Trustees unanimously voted to substantially increase room and board rates for the 2021-22 academic year. The adopted changes work out to a $203 increase per student per semester for those paying for a standard double room and mid-level meal plan — a 3.45% from 2020-21 mid-level rates.

Head over to Penn State’s Arrival page for more details on room assignments, move-in procedures, and more.
